Everything But the Squeal : A Year of Pigging Out in Northern Spain Paperback
by John Barlow
John Barlow, a self-confessed glutton, finds himself in a meat-lover's dream in northern Spain.
Galicia, the misty-green north-west corner, reveres and consumes every part of the pig.
This starts Barlow thinking about the nature of our relationship with food - what's delicious, what's nasty and what sort of obligation we have to the animals we eat.
Over the course of one glorious, bilious year, Barlow tries the patience of his vegetarian wife as he goes the whole hog and vows to eat everything but the squeal, from cocido in a cantina to a chorizo feast at Carnival, from ribs to roast ham, all washed down with local wine - delicious!
